Grilled Pizza

It’s BBQ Season again. I almost couldn’t wait. A Pizza from the BBQ is so delicious. While my family likes a plain Pizza, just Pepperoni or Salami and Cheese, I prefer a Pizza with Tuna and Onions, or even more with lot’s of vegetables, Olives and Feta cheese. In this recipe I’ll give you the basic recipe for the grilled pizza and you can choose your toppings.

The dough doesn’t need much of ingredients. Just flour, yeast, salt, sugar, olive oil and warm water.

First you combine yeast, sugar and warm water. Stir it until yeast is resolved. Let it rest for 15 min. If it has to go quick, and that is often like that, I just skip the 15 min. It works as well.

Put all the other ingredients in a bowl and add the yeast water. Knead it with hands or with the kitchen aid for 5 min. Cover the dough and let it rise for 1 hour or until the dough has doubled.

Divide the dough into 6 equal pieces.

Cover the dough with a kitchen towel or with tinfoil. Prepare the cheese and tomato sauce. You can either buy your favorite tomato sauce or take your homemade sauce.

Roll each piece on a floured surface until it has a thin shape. Take some semolina and litter it on a wooden board. Use enough or the dough will stick on the board. Put the dough on the wooden board and then put tomato sauce on it. Use as much as you like. My family doesn’t like too much sauce.

Put the grated cheese on top of the tomato sauce and then cover it with pepperoni or salami or what ever you like.

Put a Pizza stone on your BBQ and preheat it to 550 Fahrenheit.

Transfer the Pizza from the wooden board to the pizza stone with a spatula.

Close the BBQ and bake the pizza for 5 min. Don’t open the lid.
